About this Item

Blue printed wraps. 98 pp. The score to Dmitri Shostakovich's Fourteenth Symphony, Op. 135, composed in 1969. It was first performed by the Moscow Chamber Orchestra in Leningrad on September 29, 1969. Laid in at the rear is a several page article on the symphony, including poetry by Guillaume Apollinaire, from which much of the symphony quotes. The symphony itself reflects on the theme of death, and draws from the work of Apollinaire, Rilke and Federico Garcia Lorca, among others. Dmitri Shostakovich was Soviet Russian composer in the mid 20th century, often at odds with the Communist Party, with he and he work being officially denounced on several occasions. Despite the threats to his career and life Shostakovich kept composing, eventually earning favor with the Communist Party, although bearing criticism for potentially yielding to the government critics. GOOD+ condition. Minor soiling and fading to the covers, with faint foxing to the rear panel. Interior clean and solid. Bookseller Inventory # 007613
